The Phalange, LF and SLA want absolute control and a united Lebanon under a Right-Wing Christian Government, the official ideology is Martinezism which advocates Anti-Communism, Third-Postionist economics, and Nationalism. Since the (Phalangist) Kataeb Party, Guardians of the Cedars, United Phoenician Party, National Liberal Party, Syriac Union Party, Lebanese Forces and Liberty Front all united as one under the name (National Lebanese Christian Phalange) NLCP. and have describe their platform as the following. This in addition to hundreds of Volunteers from Gran Cuscatlan. After intra-Christian violence between the LF/Phalange alliance against Marada counterparts, a peace treaty was signed and the warring Right-Wing Christian militias reunited as the New Lebanese Front!

Ideology of the National Lebanese Christian Phalange:
They have formed many militias, mainly to counter the Pro-Syrian Marada traitors

South Lebanon Army (Israeli/North Lebanese backed insurgency)
1. Officer, Christian Phalangist ‘Lebanese Forces'; Beirut.
Since the start of the North-South Lebanese tensions, the Phalangists have been receiving ever increasing amount of Israeli military aid, ranging from weapons to uniforms and equipment. Consequently, these Christian solders took on a rather distinctive Israeli appearance. This A'askari (officer) is wearing an Israeli fatigue shirt and Israeli-supplied ex-American OF 107 trousers. A Lebanese Forces nametape is worn on the shirt, and the Kata'eb (Phalange) party insignia on the right pocket. The cloth patch on the sleeve identifies this officer as belonging to a Lebanese Forces command unit. His pistol belt and black combat boots are Israeli; the holster for his 9 mm Browning is locally made; and his rifle is a 5.56 mm Swiss SG 540, formerly property of the Lebanese Army. An M-16 or an Israeli-supplied AK-47 (from captured Arab stocks) might also be carried. The black beret is not issue, and is probably a personal preference. It is decorated with a Commando Unit insignia.
2. Christian Militiaman, Phalangist “Lebanese Forces'; East Beirut.
This militiaman, in the Christian half of Beirut , is wearing the kind of assortment of clothing, weaponry and equipment which has become typical of various militias in Lebanon . Here, the latest (at the time) American BDU camouflage uniform is worn with Israeli fatigue cap, boots, and web gear. It is very difficult to track down the origins of all those odds and ends. In addition to aid from the Israelis, the Christians purchased a large part of their supplies on the open market, and also made use of captured enemy stocks. The brown Israeli paratroop boots are also interesting: even though many Lebanese Forces personnel have been trained in Israel , few, if any, became parachute qualified. However, as the boots evoke ‘elite forces' status, they became a favorite among the Phalange forces. The M-16 rifle is the main issue with the Christian army. This particular example is fitted with a small 3-power optical sight. He also has a Smith & Wesson revolver in a black leather holster. In Lebanon , where weapons are considered a sign of machismo, the more weapons carried, the greater the individual prestige.
3. Militiaman, TZADAL, Southern Lebanon Army; Nabatiyeh.
TZADAL or Southern Lebanon Army was established in 1976 under former Lebanese Army Major Saad Haddad with a purpose of curtailing the PLO activity along the Israeli northern border. Both Christians and Moslems joined, although the command structure remained predominantly Christian, after the Israeli withdrawal from Southern Lebanon in 2000 the SLA went into exile, when the Lebanese Government got over taken by Israeli backed Far-Right Christian Phalangist forces in the North, the Israelis also wanted the South to be united with the North under the Phalange so they revived the SLA and got many SLA veterans to join the New South Lebanon Army, the militia’s base is in Haifa Israel and also does terrorist and guerrilla tactics in South Lebanon against Bilad Ash Sham forces. This militiaman wears a basically Israeli uniform of bush hat, fatigues, and combat boots. His canvas web gear is locally made, and modeled on the ChiCom type. The four main pockets accommodate a wide variety of rifle magazines; smaller pouches at each side hold grenades, and there are also places for canteens. He is armed with an M-16/M203 rifle/grenade launcher combo, and also carries an AK-47 recently taken from a dead PLO guerilla. The unit tag attached to the left epaulette is almost identical in stile to IDF tags, an is issued to all militia members: the motif combines the images of Cedar of Lebanon and a fist brandishing a sword.

1. Lebanese Forces commando'; Zahle.
A militiaman serving in one of the conventionally-structured special units formed within the Maronite militia with Israeli support. Fighting the Syrians at Zahle, a major Christian center, he wears a civilian-made duck-hunter' camouflage uniform typical of Lebanese Forces in that battle, and the IDF load-balancing equipment.; plus the special chest pouches for 40 mm rounds for the M-16/M203 combo. He also wears a holstered Browning HP pistol. The small Lebanese flag badge on the black beret is interesting: these is a good deal of improvisation in cap badges, although Lebanese Forces patterns exist.
2. Lebanese Forces military policeman'; Beirut.
This Phalangist MP, seen at Charbel Isaure’s funeral, added Lebanese Forces nametape above the left breast pocket; and an Israeli-made Orlite Kevlar infantry ballistic helmet painted to mark his status as does the left sleeve brassard. The whitened pistol belt and holster, the boots and the webbing are also Israeli made. The M-16 was standard among the Lebanese Forces. Less common were the Lebanese Forces parachute wings, worn above the breast pocket; although many militiamen trained in Israel, only those elite or politically privileged unites enjoyed the luxury of jump training.
3. Officer. Force Sadem', Lebanese Forces, Junieh.
An elite and clandestine unit, Force Sadem' are hand picket at the highest level for their skills, loyalty, and ruthlessness. With typical olive Israeli-made fatigues, including paratroop/Golani Class A trousers, he wears items peculiar to Force Sadem': a red beret worn in a French manner, with special badge, and the unit patch on the right shoulder all other Lebanese Forces patches are worn on the left.The metal parachute wings worn above the Lebanese Forces nametape are peculiar to officers. Note brown IDF paratrooper boots, another mark of elite status; and Walther PPK pistol.
4. Lebanese Force Marine; Damour.
Lebanese forces processed over a dozen patrol craft, ranging from the Israeli Dabur class to small fishing craft armed with machine guns and RPGs. The small but highly efficient Marine unit is used as a shock force. In 1985 they managed to sail undetected from Christian East Beirut to Damour, where remnants of South Lebanese Army were fighting Shi'ite and Druze elements. In 2 hours the Marines relieved the defeated South Lebanese Army of their heavy weaponry, salvaging dozens of M113s and M-60 tanks, before the Muslim enemy could though it safe to venture into the area. This uniform has an ominously direct Israeli character: ex-IDF/ex-US Army OG-107 Nomex blouse and trousers, Israeli Kevlar flak vest, IDF web gear, and M-5 grenades are worn on an IDF pistol belt. The light blue beret and Lebanese Forces Marines left sleeve patch are in fact the only Lebanese items displayed.
